Personalized treatment

Wouldn't it be nice if mental health treatment could be tailored to individual brains? I guess that's the future of medicine.


20 years later...

Prozac gets a review in The Guardian.

I vividly remember reading Elizabeth Wurtzel's Prozac Nation, her memior about her struggles with depression, and being distinctly jealous of her because at the end of the book, she takes this pill and makes it sound as though her troubles simply floated away. According to Wurtzel, Prozac cured her depression. Lucky bitch.
